Tradition has it that Study of Man must be done alongside the study of Universe. Man is created in the image of God and so is the Universe. For as Above so Below. At the core of Man and Universe is "What IS" and from it springs "Consciousness". In the Universal context it weaves the Worlds and in Man the "Apprehending Consciousness" which in association with mind and senses perceives the world that we see.

"What IS" is God and "Consciousness" is the power of God. In Man "What IS" is his Self and "Consciousness" is that which gives him life.

The names and forms (objects and sounds etc) are unreal display ever changing and temporary but seeming to be otherwise. All thoughts arising in mind (including self image) is likewise unreal and other than "What IS" which is our Self.
